Perforce Enables Secure and Performant Continuous Delivery on VMware vCloud Air

Industry-leading version control and collaboration platform serves as a "single source of truth" for all assets, on and off premises

WOKINGHAM, UK (August 26, 2014) - Perforce Software today announced the availability of the Perforce versioning engine on VMware vCloud® Air™, providing highly performing repositories that serve as a "single source of truth" for all of a company's global development assets. The combination of Perforce and VMware vCloud Air brings scalability, visibility and security to development environments, along with the flexibility of on- and off-premises production systems.

Perforce uses VMware vCloud Air to support its own global development and has seen first-hand the benefits the two companies now bring to shared customers. The performance of Perforce deployed on vCloud Air was identical to its on-premises deployment using similar resources. vCloud Air allowed Perforce to set up a secure environment with the same skill set used to manage enterprise environments. The combined result is a hybrid on-premises and public cloud environment that provides the security, visibility and compliance required when dealing with business-critical intellectual property.

"IT organizations need to speed up product release cycles to address critical business needs more quickly without jeopardizing security," said Ajay Patel, vice president of Application Services, vCloud Air, VMware. "Perforce running on VMware vCloud Air allows globally dispersed developers working in a hybrid deployments (on-premises or off-premises) to securely collaborate throughout the development lifecycle, reducing both errors and wasted development time."

Perforce enables Continuous Delivery, a development methodology that helps businesses release better products more quickly by keeping software in a releasable state at all times. Key versioning requirements for the practice include having a single repository for all enterprise assets, scalability to support highly automated processes, support for collaboration across multi-functional teams, and visibility across all projects.

VMware vCloud Air is a secure, dedicated hybrid cloud service operated by VMware, built on the trusted foundation of VMware vSphere®. The service supports existing workloads and third-party applications, as well as new application development, giving IT a common platform for seamlessly extending its data center into the cloud.

"VMware vCloud® Air™ is an ideal platform for Perforce since it provides the same enterprise-grade security and performance both on-premises and at cloud locations across the globe," said Christopher Seiwald, founder and CEO of Perforce. "With VMware vCloud Air we can spin up new resources to support the development lifecycle as demand increases and we get the same performance advantages we've had with our on-premises systems."
